  • Should I get a loan after the bank has approved me for a grant?
    When you are still waiting for the property to register, you should not take any loan because if you do it will damage/increase the expenses compared to the one you had when the bank granted you the loan/bond.
  • Can we invest in one property but share the amount needed?
    Yes, you can invest in one property and share the amount or monthly repayment that is needed. This partnership will require a contract to be signed by both parties, with a memorandum of understanding to prevent conflict that may arise in future. investRand has successfully helped many clients on how to structure their partnerships and/or investment clubs. They are able to generate enough positive cashflow from their tenants to pay the monthly bond repayments, rates, taxes, and levies, and still have some money left, while maintaining ownership of the property.

  • Can I invest in Real Estate with a salary of R30 000?
    Your income may not be the determining factor, provided you have enough savings to cover buying cost such as bond registration fees, Sourcing fees, and transfer fees. This remains applicable even in scenarios where the bank grants you a full loan approval. For example, where the loan approval falls short, having enough funds to cover the entire purchase price of the property is important.
